Always a comfy home to return to after your days adventures in Yosemite, the Gold Rush Country or Central Valley. Just kicking around Mariposa is a great treat too. It is located at the base of the Mother Lode and is loaded with history.

The Doe's Cottage is just a block away from Historic down town Mariposa and walking distance to the bus stop for Yosemite or the Central valley. Mariposa has a home town atmosphere with a wonderful museum, fairgrounds with a mineral museum, some great new restaurants and no stoplights!.

Visiting Yosemite

From Doe's Cottage you have a choice of three entrance gates to enter Yosemite National Park. The fastest and most direct way to Yosemite is Hwy 140 along the Merced River. It is a half hour to the Yosemite Arch Rock Entrance and then a half hour into Yosemite Valley. Another popular route is through the pretty country foothills on Hwy 49 South through Oakhurst to Hwy 41 North where you enter the pines on your way to the South Gate Park entrance at Wawona. At this entrance is the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias.

The third option, Hwy 49 North will take you through some of the old wild west gold rush towns of Coulterville and then to Hwy 120 through Groveland and to the park's Big Oak Flat west gate. On any of these routes you see plenty of California's rich history. Yosemite speaks for it's self but after you book we can suggest our favorite spots. If it's the gold country your after, Hwy 49 North to Jamestown and Columbia are just and hour away. If you are visiting the new Merced UC college you are about 40 minutes from campus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We didn't get a chance to tell you about our stay on the VRBO site....but if you'd like to copy and post this...

Our stay was Wonderful. Very comfortable and served our needs perfectly. As a base to visit Yosemite and surrounding area it was ideal. Beds are comfortable, which was nice after a long days of hiking. It was very clean when we arrived and our host had had a binder filled with information which was very nice. Visiting the shops and restaurants in town was also very nice. We didn't spend much time at the house as we left for Yosemite at 6am and didn't arrive back until sometimes 8pm that evening but the time we were there it was perfect. Our overall rating is 5 stars and would & will recommend Doe's Cabin to anyone. Thank you to our host for a wonderful week.

Cozy & warm cabin in Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to this cottage over the Valentine's weekend. As we entered, we felt like we were at home. It is simply and thoughtfully decorated with sufficient heaters in each room. Very comfortable, clean and near the town. Had everything needed to make meals. I accidentally left my electronic device behind and they were kind enough to mail it back to me. Doe & Chris, thank you so much for sharing your lovely Mariposa home with us.

Comfortable and convenient stay, cant beat it

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at your cottage. Starting our morning off with a homemade breakfast out front by the lawn was the perfect way to get our legs ready to move for our adventure into YOSEMITE! The cottage had all the amenities we needed to cook our own meals and enjoy some quality relaxation, the whole time feeling like we never left home. Thank you for our clean, comfortable stay. We're already looking forward to our next trip.

Doe's Cottage- adorable place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

In the heart of Mariposa, everything was so close to the house. The property is beautiful, spotless inside with many welcoming touches. Outside is beautifully landscaped with a garden, flowers, and a green lawn! It was a close and easy drive to get to Yosemite, but the property was far enough away from the tourist crowds. After a long day sightseeing, it was nice to be able to run to the store/grab a bite at the local restaurants- all within a short walk! Doe made everything very easy for us- from reservations to directions-I would recommend this property and will definitely be coming back! Thanks for a great trip!

Perfect for Our Yosemite Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Doe's Cottage is a very clean, comfortable rental. It is located in a pretty quite area of Mariposa but still within walking distance of restaurants and stores. My favorite places to eat were Savory's, Castillo's and especially Sal's Taco Truck (located next to the museum in the parking lot). The grounds of the cottage are well kept and attractive. There is a very well stocked kitchen in the cottage. The photos portray the properties charm very accurately. Doe was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. I would definitely recommend this rental.

Doe's Cottage, Mariposa - Quaint, Clean and Delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. It is clean and comfortable and is filled with local charm. A quiet setting yet very close to downtwon Mariposa. The cottage has a sunny corner in the front room where you can read your favorite newspaper or book. We enjoyed walking to downtown, shopping and dining and walking back to the cozy cottage. The property has a nice lawn and several blossoming plants.The owner is very friendly and has great ideas on local places to see and where to visit in Yosemite. Yosemite is an easy 45 minute drive away. In Mariposa, we enjoyed dining at Castillo's Mexican Restaurant as well as the Sugar Pine Cafe. Merchants were friendly and we enjoyed winetasting at Casto Oaks Winetasting Room and Gallery, Mariposa. We would recommend Doe's Cottage to our friends and we plan to visit again and again.
